Traveling Cowl

from Shellee's Artworks
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Traveling Cowl
Traveling Cowl Traveling - Long and Bulky
Traveling Cowl Traveling - Short and Bulky
Traveling Cowl Traveling - Long and Super Bulky
Traveling Cowl Traveling - Short and Super Bulky

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit/purl
  • cast on/cast off
  • join to knit in the round

Pattern Description:

This pattern came into being because I needed a cowl. I worked this up and immediately fell in love. The stitch pattern is a variation of k2 p2 ribbing and it gives a great textured feel. It looks impressive while really being very easy to do.

This is a great pattern for that one skein of special yarn, or when you need a quick knit that's easy and turns out a great result. This pattern is also easily modified for width and length.

There are two lengths of cowl written in this pattern. The short length is more of a neckwarmer and is meant to work for one skein of Bulky or Super Bulky yarn. The long length should work for 2 skeins.

Amount needed varies between 100-250 yards (87 m - 229 m) depending on which length and which yarn is chosen.

Due to the nature of digital downloads, this pattern is nonrefundable. Please ask any questions before purchase.
